FCP 7 - 1920 HD 24P footage - convert to SD PAL 16:9 FHA (how???)

Hi Guys,

I really need help converting this music video for broadcast in Europe. All I know is what I have and what they want (via their specs sheet, which they waited 2 weeks to send to me...) I have never done this sort of conversion, so I don't know - can I do it in FCP? or do I need to export a full res and do it in Compressor? I need to do this tonight, I would be eternally grateful for any assistance. Thanks!

What I have:
Full HD 1920 Footage in a 4 minute timeline shot with a Canon 5D MArk II at 24P. HQ Pro Res Timeline in FCP 7 (studio.) On a MAcbook Pro running OS X 10.6.8

Their Specs (They need:)
A Pro Res 422 .MOV file in SD at 720x576, at Aspect Ratio "16:9 FHA" - Frame Rate: 25 (PAL) - Chroma Subsampling 4:2:2, INTERLACED TOP FIELD FIRST, Audio Codec PCM, Audio Sampling Rate/Size: 48/24, 2 Ch Stereo.

So do I output from FCP and do all of these conversions in Compressor? I tried to cut and paste in FCP and it would not let me. How do I do all of this AND convert to PAL - AND make it 16:9 FHA?" at 720x576??? I really need a step-by-step walk through if possible. Please help! Thank you very much.

You have a preset in Compressor:
Other Workflows > Advanced Format Conversion > Standard Definition > SD 10b Uncompressed PAL.

- Duplicate the preset.
- Change the Codec by the Prores HQ.
- Set "Frame Control: ON".
- Set the re-size filter BEST.
- Set Field Order "Upper-first".
